The ice on the Lake in front of this city still lingers, a thing before unknown here at so late a period in the season. This baffles all previous business calculations, and is a source of much annoyance to shippers and forwarders, as well as to holders of property in transit. It seems that the lower end of Lake Ontario is yet full of ice, while the St. Lawrence is reported to be rapidly breaking up. As a result of the unexampled delay in Lake navigation, a consignment of flour was received here yesterday, by Messrs. Ames & Sloan, from Hamilton by railroad, via Suspension Bridge and Syracuse. This is a new feature in the trade of Oswego.
